Books are considered treasures by many of us, and this metalwork bookmark is a fabulous way to mark your pages safely. Using nickel silver, I hammered the metal wire flat so that it would not cause any damage to your book. The piece that appears in the photo is the exact bookmark that you will receive when you order it. If you like this design in brass, I can accommodate your request. Never again will you lose track of your reading with this nifty bookmark.
